I ordered a set of the Seymour Duncan Pegasus/Sentinent to replace the stock S2 pups in my PRS S2 Custom 22. The SD's are uncovered and the stock are nickel covered so i bought a set of nickel covers from SD to go over the new pups. Watching videos, theres a ton of ways to put the covers on from just pushing them on all the way to boiling in wax. Theres people who tape and silicone etc etc etc. What do you all recommend? I dont play a ton of super high gain stuff but i dont want them to get microphonic while playing a show or something.

I removed the covers from two sets that were wax potted and thought they sounded so much better with high gain than with the covers, plus they looked cooler.

It not like they fed back with the covers, just a weird spike.

Its an antique white PRS and i thought about just using the black uncovered look but it just looks like trash to me.
